Hi, I'm Noah, and I'm going to show you how to burn a DVD with a computer. DVD burners have become completely standard in computers these days, so it's something that everybody can use with their computer now. It's very useful either for saving your information or music or films that you might have on your computer, or for copying existing DVD's. To burn a DVD with a computer you'll need some kind of DVD burning software, like Nero for example. You can also find free software of this kind; for example, CDBurnerXP, which is available at Now, if you simply want to burn some files onto a DVD, you can simply launch your burning software, and then once it's launched create a data disc. This is very easy to do, and most burning software works in the same way. You simply select which files you'd like to add onto the DVD. Once you've selected them click on the Add icon, and then you're ready to start burning your DVD. However, if you want to copy an existing DVD onto a new blank DVD, and it's a protected movie for example, then you might need additional software to bypass the protection like Slysoft's AnyDVD, or a free alternative, DVD Shrink, which you can find at These programs aren't actually burning software in themselves, but with them combined with some other burning program you'll be able to bypass the protection on movies, for example, which are on DVD, and make a copy of those.
